november 16th, 2012. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, welcome to "today" on a friday morning, i am matt lauer. >> good morning, i am savannah guthrie. we look at the statue of liberty live. we're going to witness something incredible on the plaza. if there's a dry eye left when the ceremony is over, i'll be amazed. 30 people that worked so hard to become u.s. citizens, a wait sometimes measured in decades will become u.s. citizens on the plaza this morning. >> so many of us take this for granted. those people on the plaza do not take it for granted. it will be amazing, their family members will witness it as well. >> we look forward to that. we start with sad news out of midland, texas. one minute they're taken to a banquet to honor veterans, the next chaos. >> witnesses say the float was almost across the tracks when
7:02am
hit by a double decker freight train. investigators are still piecing together how this could have happened, but apparently the crossing gate and warning lights were working properly. let's get to nbc's janet sham ling. >> reporter: there's no way to describe it. an eery scene at the crossing where this horrifying accident happened. the freight train still behind me, so is the flatbed trailer carrying the veterans. you can see the chairs on the trailer where they were sitting and some of the name tags announcing who they were, and where they served. what we know at this point, four people are dead. 17 injured, including one critical injury. what we don't know and the question everyone is asking today, how this could have possibly happened. it was supposed to be a night of joyous celebration, a parade for wounded veterans.
7:03am
it turned into a deadly nightmare. >> need ambulances on the south side of the railroad tracks, send as many as we can. >> reporter: a flatbed carrying 12 veterans and spouses was crossing railroad tracks when a double decker freight train from union pacific slammed into it. >> may be one of the most tragic events in town. >> reporter: he heard the crash and ran to help. >> there were lots of people out walking around, trying to see maybe if there's any help or anything we could do to help any of them. >> reporter: midland county sheriff gary painer said the trailer was almost across the tracks when it was hit. some on the flatbed tried to jump, others tried to protect wives and girlfriends. he called it pandemonium. one of those, army sergeant joshua michael, recipient of two purple hearts. his mother-in-law says michael pushed his wife off the trailer just before the train hit. she survived, joshua michael was
7:04am
killed. union pacific spokesman tom lange in a statement said the railroad crossing has lights and a crossing gate. he said the railroad's preliminary investigation indicates that the lights and gates were operating at the time of the crash. video taken after the accident shows the lights still flashing and the crossing gate down. the parade and banquet sponsored by a group called show of support. their website says each year they try to find new ways to thank military men and women for their service. this year, it was an event called hunt for heroes. all expenses paid deer hunting trip for wounded veterans. on the group's facebook page, an outpouring of sympathy. >> it was really sad. the families have already seen them go off to war, seen stuff that obviously -- they were all wounded, so they've already had to go through something horrific. >> these guys are true american heroes. we had the parade at 4:00, they
7:05am
passed by waving, celebrating, and midlanders lining the streets with flags and waving and so proud of these guys. it's just we're all terribly sad. >> reporter: secretary of defense leon panetta issued a statement saying he is very sorry about this tragic accident and his thoughts are with the victims, the families and this community. this is a community very much in shock this morning. the ntsb has a team of investigators on the way. they will be on the scene here later this morning to look into this. savannah, back to you. >> janet shamlian, thank you. a close friend of joshua michael and his family is on the phone with us from lubbock, texas. cory, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> our condolences go to you and the family. you have spoken with dalin. what did she tell you about the moments before the accident. i understand her husband pushed her off the float and saved her life. >> yes, he did.
7:06am
i think it was just pandemonium more than anything else, you know. can't even imagine a train coming at you, what reaction you would have. obviously joshua had the reaction of a real man. >> i know josh had obviously his wife dalin and two little kids, how is the family holding up this morning? >> i think everybody is still in shock just trying to take the news in. dalin flew back home last night, got to be with the kids, and, you know, that's not news to share let alone kids that had their dad go to war, come back, just gotten him back really in their lives. >> you mention his service overseas, heroics you described last night, shouldn't surprise anyone that knows him, twice decorated, purple heart recipient, served our country twice in iraq. what else would you want people to know about your friend?
7:07am
>> he was a great, caring guy. avid hunter, a musician, loved to play drums and guitar. i got to hear him play several times, and just you know an all around american hero. >> sounds like an extraordinary man, certainly active with such bravery last night. cory rogers, our condolences to the family. thank you for sharing your story this morning. >> thank you, savannah. i'll let them know. thank you so much. >> savannah, thanks so much. debbie hersman chairs up the national transportation safety board. good morning. >> good morning. >> according to preliminary reports, crossing lights and gate were working. how could this happen? >> there's always a lot of conflicting information in the beginning of an investigation. when we get on scene, we have to corroborate the data with the witness interviews. we're going to look at the signals, downloading information
7:08am
from the wayside signals, making sure the gates and lights were coming down, if that was the case. but also there was a forward facing camera on the train. that will give us some video images, if it survived the crash, and we can download it as well as recorders on the train. it is all important to investigators to establish the facts. >> i know back in 2003 the law was changed allowing trains to go through midland, texas, increasing the speed from 40 to 60 miles per hour. i think that was to prevent long waits for people at crossings. do you have any indication at this early stage how fast this train was traveling? >> you know, we just got notified about this accident about 12 hours ago. our team is in route. we have investigators from texas who are there now meeting with the midland officials, but grade crossing accidents are something that concern us. over 250 fatalities as grade crossings and 16 last year in texas. we want to make sure we can identify what happened and why it happened so we can prevent things like this from happening in the future.
7:09am
>> i know you've got a big job ahead. it is a tragic story. debbie hersman, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> savannah? now to the middle east where israel and militants in gaza are on the brink of a possible new war. the two sides exchanging rocket attacks for more than two days now. this morning, there are signs that the israelis are preparing for a potential ground invasion. our reporter is in benghazi. >> reporter: good morning. palestinian eye witnesses in the gaza strip say the israeli navy can be seen off the coast, thousands massed on the border. the purpose of this operation according to the israelis is to stop palestinian rocket fire. from where we are standing, we've been able to hear and see palestinian rockets fired into southern israel, an indication that the violence has not stopped. for a second straight night,
7:10am
israel attacks the gaza strip. overnight in return, palestinian factions fired dozens of rockets into israel. few people here getting much resin the past two days. on thursday, fighting escalated sharply with the first rocket attack from gaza reaching tel aviv, and mobilization of troops near the border, 30,000 ground reserves, ominous sign a ground invasion could be imminent. >> israel is prepared to take whatever action is necessary. >> reporter: israel claims to have hit more than 450 sites in gaza since the operation began wednesday. stated aim to stock rocket fire from gaza, but that hasn't happened. three israelis were killed by rocket attack thursday. this morning, there was attempted ceasefire, the egyptian prime minister arrived in gaza with the hopes of brokering a truce and sending a message to palestinians. egypt is standing by the people of gaza in their pain, he said. people took advantage of the
7:11am
relative lull in violence to stock up on whatever they could. since israel began attacks, getting food has become harder and more expensive this man tells me, but the ceasefire didn't hold. israel announced on twitter hamas hadn't stopped firing into southern israel, and israel fired into gaza where the death toll is 19, including five children. the latest violence exploded when they fired the chief thursday, a barrage of rockets and missiles. israeli air force calling out precision strikes. in crowded gaza, the civilians bear the brunt. this child, son of a local bbc technician was 11 months old when he was killed by an israeli air strike. savannah, we've been speaking to palestinians here, and the sense they have is fear and anxiety. they're extremely afraid of what could be coming next on the horizon. the focus is what is it going to take to break the impact between
7:12am
the palestinian fax and the israeli government. so far, there's no indication there's a truce in place. in fact, in the last hour, the israeli air force carried out strikes, including one that killed a palestinian child. back to you. >> thank you. ex cia director david petraeus is being grilled about libya as his former agency launches investigation into his personal conduct and admitted affair. andrea mitchell is in washington with more on this story. good morning. >> good morning, matt. all eyes are on former cia director david petraeus who is under investigation by the very agency he was head of as the cia investigates whether petraeus used agency resources to further his relationship with his biographer, paula broadwell. this as petraeus heads to capitol hill testifying behind closed doors on the benghazi attacks before the house and senate intelligence committees.
7:13am
the nation's former top spy is facing pressure on two fronts. now under investigation by the agency he once headed, even as he prepares to testify before congress on benghazi. petraeus' testimony expected to focus on when the cia knew the attack on the consulate was an act of terrorism and not a spontaneous demonstration. on thursday, top intelligence officials briefed senate intelligence committee members behind closed doors. members say they were shown a real time video of the entire attack. >> the film is a composite from a number of sources. it is real time. it does begin from when the incident, before the incident started and it goes through the incident and the exodus. >> reporter: petraeus faces a startling reversal of fortune after the cia announced investigation of him. according to letters the agency sent both houses of congress thursday. the cia says the focus of the inspector general's probe is
7:14am
whether petraeus used agency resources to further his relationship with paula broadwell. they were last seen together at a dinner honoring robert gates, former cia director and defense secretary in washington october 27th. officials say the cia has been told by the fbi there's no indication petraeus misused classified material, but the investigation is open ended. this as new details emerge thursday about frederick humphreys ii, the fbi agent that trgered the investigation that led to the resignation. he is a 16 year veteran, played a major role in foilg the plot to blow up lax in 1999. military officials say he is currently fbi liaison officer for special operations command in tampa. humphreys got to know jill kelley in tampa and she turned to him when she and general john allen received anonymous e-mails last spring they found alarming. thursday, humphreys helped explain that shirtless picture
7:15am
he sent kelley telling them it was a joke. he posed with target dummies after s.w.a.t. practice. he told an old friend about the petraeus investigation. reichearth alerted eric cantor, almost two weeks before the president was officially notified. >> information that was sent to me sounded as if there was potential for a national security vulnerability. >> reporter: attorney jenngene l general eric holder was asked why the president wasn't informed earlier. >> we don't share outside the justice department and fbi the facts of on-going investigations. >> reporter: the defense secretary, leon panetta, ordered an ethics review for training of military officers. he said he has no evidence that more military officers could be caught up in that trays scandal. matt? >> andrea mitchell in washington. thanks.
7:16am

companies, walmart and target, they will offer same-day shipping and that's something you can't offer to all your customers. how big a hit will you take on it in. >> we've always been in a hypercompetitive business, e-commerce, even from the very beginning, has been hypercompetitive. that's good thing and good for the customers, even good for the customers that embrace that dynamic. >> forcing you to innovate as well. >> always. that's what happens when companies and businesses force each other to innovate and we have to evolve, and we are. we're providing better customer experience today than we ever had. people get their goods faster. lower prices than ever. we're ready. >> one of the areas where the world has become so competitive and all our little devices like the one right here. you've got the kindle fire hd and the kindle paper weight. apple just came out with their new ipad mini. are you willing to say that you can compete fully on that, even in the area of coolness which apple seems to have had a monopoly on for so long? >> you know, i have a lot of
7:45am
admiration for apple. a huge company, super successful, but we take a different approach, so if you look at our kindle fire hd, high definition display, packs a lot of technology into a very low price point, $199 because we don't make any profit when we sell the device. we sell the device near break even and we hope to make money over time as people use the device. they buy e-books and mp3s and buy gains. that's a different approach. it's working for us. kindle fire hd is our number one best-seller globally. >> let me put you on the spot a little bit. 1999 you were named "time" magazine's person of the year. i was on a panel other day when they are trying to figure out 2012's person of the year. who should it be? >> my goodness. way too hard of a question. >> give it a shot. >> matt lauer. >> it could be barack obama, i mean, a lot of candidates. who do you think it should be? >> you have put me on the spot. i don't know. >> no clue. >> well, think about it and get back to it. >> in an election year obama

8:04am
>> that is really uncomfortable. all right. thanks so much. our friends here from california wonder where these guys are from? who are those guys? a bunch of weird looking, freaky looking, wow. let's check your weather to see what's going on. we'll show you our picture today. philadelphia, pennsylvania, nbc 10 got a big marathon this weekend. mostly sunny and my "wake up with al" parter? stephanie abrams running in that this weekend. a lot of wet weather in the pacific northwest and central california. over the next 24 hours, 1 to 2 inches of rain. snow showers as well in the pacific northwest. sunny skies with a beautiful high pressure system taking over the great lakes. it's going to be a little on the chilly side and look for some fog and hit or miss showers or . 8:05. tracking some steady rainfall all the way from san jose up to

8:06am
actually supported the deal that we offered, and they have been crossing the picket lines and trying to support the business, but the bakers union i think, the leadership of that union made a decision that they are willing to sacrifice these jobs because they don't really want to have these kind of concessions from other companies. >> we're talking about the loss of 18,500 if the company goes out of business. i have a statement from the bakers union. despite greg rayburn's insulting and disingenuous statements of the last month the truth is hostess workers and the union have absolutely no responsibility for the failure of this company. that responsibility rests squarely on the shoulders of the company's decision-makers. >> i've been pretty straightforward in all the town hall meetings i've done at our plants to say in this situation i think there's blame that goes around for everyone. >> is this really the end of the road for hostess or can i be blunt? is this some kind of negotiating tactic to get the unions back to the table? is this really it? >> it's over. >> no more twinkies. >> this is it. >> thank you sir, for being here. we appreciate it. >> thank you. and we'll go back to matt. >> savannah, thank you.

8:08am
behind him. i think she was his partner in work. she was his partner in life, obviously, and she, which i didn't know anything about alma, certainly in the shadows. the spotlight was on alfred, but she -- people who know say there were four hands on alfred's movies. two of them were alma's, so she was very proactive in the creation of all his great works >> you know, i'm sitting here, and i think we should remember that a large portion of our younger audience watching may not be all that familiar with who alfred hitchcock was. >> this is true. of course. >> describe his impact on the movie industry. >> well, you know, the effect of alfred hitchcock and any filmmaker obviously will know who alfred hitchcock was because to this day they are very influenced by alfred hitch could, and many of the young, especially the young horror film-makers or the thriller film-makers will always cite alfred hitchcock as one of their inspirations because he was so
8:09am
ahead of his time in terms of creating suspense and drama. he was known as the master of suspense. >> you're wonderful in this role. sir antny hopkins loses himself in the role of alfred hitchcock. do i have to play some kind of an extra fee when i have a dame and a sir in the leading roles in a film like that? >> i should think so. >> you going back to the stage? >> i am, i'm going back and doing "the queen" again which is, you know, not a challenge. well, it will be a challenge, maybe a mistake, but i'm looking forward to it. i'm doing a play called "the audience." >> one of the things we've learned about you over the years it's never a mistake when you take on a great role. wonderful to see you. last time was in london. a joy to hang out there. >> an amazing experience. london was so great. great to see you guys in london. so great for me. i could disconnect, you new yorkers. >> there you were strutting your

8:14am
said something that we're really at a tipping point, almost the point of no return where there could be no chance to try to reduce nuclear weapons in the world to zero. why is that? >> well, proliferation since the period of the 1980s when president reagan launched a process. his vision was zero, and he launched a process that cut american arsenals by 50%, and russian as well. they worked on this together. since that period of time proliferation has reached out into other parts of the world, and said we have 19,000 weapons that are some not well secured, some in very volatile regions, and we have the threat of proliferation extending even further into the middle east. >> and i want to pick up on that with valerie. this is something you worked on when you were at the cia. some people might look at this and think, well, wait a minute, as long as nuclear weapons are in the hands of responsible countries, why is zero the goal. it has to be the goal. i'm absutely involved in my position, working in a covert
8:15am
capacity at cia, i was doing operations to try to make sure that either -- that bad guys, whether they are rogue states or terrorists do not acquire nuclear weapons, but i've evolved in where the point now nuclear technology is so widely available. the proliferation of weapons. far beyond where we were at the height of the cold war where it was just the united states and russia, and now i think we have to drain the swamp. there is no other way, a sane way ahead >> you worry about rogue states, of course. you worry about terrorists. you worry about accidents. have you a movie "countdown to zero" which makes this argument in a really compelling way, and it telling the story of one russian man who actually tried to sell nuclear material to al qaeda. >> yes. >> the vignette of that was rather a low level worker in a uranium plant in the former soviet union, and he knew that by taking -- he could secrete very small amounts of highly
8:16am
enriched uranium, and he had a buyer that was a representative al qaeda, and the whole reason that he wanted to sell that was so that he could get a refrigerator. i mean, for him that was what -- that's all it was to him, a means to, you know, make his personal life a little better. >> queen noor, when you look at this and say you want the u.s. to lead the way and russia to lead the way in reducing nuclear arsenals. the counterargument is wait a minute all the bad actors in the world are racing towards more nuclear weapons. can we really afford to do that? >> it's the united states and russia who have 90% of the world's arsenal of nuclear weapons do continue to make the deep cuts that started during reagan, that obama has built up, that president obama now in his next term could make with the russians, significant credible cuts in, then the rest of the nuclear states will join a process that will make it much more difficult for any other state to acquire weapons and for any state that has weapons not to join that process. we believe that is the only way,
8:17am
global zero believes that's the only way, to shift from our current course towards disaster to one which promises a more peaceful world. >> queen noor, great to have you here, valerie plame, you as well. the website is globalzero.com. appreciate it. thank you. coming up, you're about to meet the people who are about to become u.s. citizens live on our plaza. into their work,
